An interesting fact about the ‘Clivia miniata’—it’s origins in California can all be traced back to the year 1907 and to a man by the name of Zimmerman, who possibly brought the seeds with him when he migrated to Carlsbad from Germany. They grow beautifully in our California climate, and supposedly at the San Francisco World’s Fair in 1939, Zimmerman entered 500 stalks of them and won a gold medal 🥇 for his display. These beauties are quite stunning. 🤩
